  • A comparison between the Weinberger Adjustment Inventory and the Minnesota multiphasic personality inventory with incarcerated adolescent males CHILD PSYCHIATRY & HUMAN DEVELOPMENT Huckaby, W. J., Kohler, M., Garner, E. H., Steiner, H. 1998; 28 (4): 273-285


    Empirical work on psychopathology and delinquency requires concise and specific instruments. The Weinberger Adjustment Inventory (WAI), was correlated with the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) using a sample of incarcerated adolescent males (N = 178). The distress dimension of the WAI was significantly and positively associated with scales 2, 4 and 7 of the MMPI. The restraint dimension was significantly and positively associated with the Lie and K scales of the MMPI. Distress and restraint were distinct dimensions. The WAI may be a brief and helpful personality measure, determining responses to conflict and subjective stress in delinquents with poor reading skills and other special education impairments. The length of the WAI makes it especially suitable for populations such as incarcerated adolescent males who exhibit short attention spans and frequent episodes of noncompliant and resistant behavior.
